the state in the last election by 5.5 points. but the way the vote came in for obama, it was concentrated in philadelphia and pittsburgh, two big areas that had significant democratic representation. if you did it district -- congressional district alone, out of the 19 congressional districts, governor romney would have carried 13, president obama only 6, and if you gave the two bonus electoral votes to the president, it would have been 13-8. if you decided to pass a law that said the bonus two go to whoever wins the most congressional districts, it would have been 15-8 in favor -- excuse me, 15-6 in favor of governor romney even though he lost the state by a very significant majority. >> but wouldn't you have maybe not riots but something close to it if the word got out in philadelphia, for example, that the state had gone by popular vote by, as you say, five points, for example, and yet the state's electoral votes had gone by and large to the republican. wouldn't people just go crazy on hearing that all their efforts to vote were eliminated by manipulation in harrisburg? >> absolutely.

. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, susan rice, had to give up after a barrage of attacks after she went on television to say that the attack was related to a peaceful protest gone awry. that leaves senator john kerry. for the most part, the republicans have already scored a political victory by defeating susan rice. one thing that could be interesting, we will see what she says about the investigation, but it is not expected to save very much, because the fbi has a lead on that. there's been a lot of criticism about the fact nobody is been arrested. the attack happened more than four months ago. what has happened since then? it's one thing to say lessons have been learned, but there does not seem to be a lot of progress made in terms of getting the perpetrators to justice. the other angle that could also hurt secretary clinton should she decide to run in 2016 is the fact nobody seems to have been fired over this. there were reports last month, suggestions that four people had been let go. we find out now they are on administrative leave and are still working at

resulted from a lack of leadership in two state department bureaus as well as woefully inadequate security in benghazi. and clearly mistakes were made. let's be clear, president obama was not responsible for the benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut which killed over 200 marines. frankly, whether it was called a terrorist attack or not. in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we just have to make sure that it never happens again. so that in the future, our people are protected. that's what, what i want to get out of all of this. so madam secretary, we commend you for accepting the arb recommendations and welcome you implementing them before you leave the department. even before the arb submitted conclusions the department moved to address certain shortcomings for which increased security proposal, the vast majority of the funding for this proposal would come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. and hope congress w
